Last Minute Valentine’s Day Crafts: Felt Hearts

Create a busy bag/box for your toddler with felt, paint and the Bowdabra. My three year old loves playingLast Minute Valentine's Day Crafts with felt so I created a Valentine’s Day color matching busy box. Busy Bags typically are constructive activities for your toddler that fit in a zip lock bag. These felt hearts will make fun Valentine’s Day gifts.

Materials:

  • Mini Bowdabra
  • Bowdabra Bow Wire
